PRINCETON DISBANDED THEIR EDITORIAL BOARD AFTER A SERIES OF RIGHT-LEANING OPINIONS
Written by Jennifer Snow on 09/25/2017
Winchester, VA – The College Fix reports that Princeton University’s campus newspaper The Princetonian has disbanded its independent editorial board after a series of politically right-leaning editorials. In two of these editorials, the women’s center was criticized for having a radical feminist agenda, and a call was made for ensuring due process in cases of sexual misconduct. Sarah Sakha, editor in chief of the Princetonian is the one who was in charge of this decision. She also happens to be a contributor to the Princeton Progressive, the school’s politically left-leaning publication. Once the independent board was disbanded, the newspaper returned to its practice of having random top editors pen editorials anonymously. The makeup of the independent editorial board was unique in that it was comprised of students from politically right, center, and left leaning persuasions. Sometimes the editorials, as in the case of the due process editorial, were issued unanimously, and at other times an editorial by one would be printed with a rebuttal by another. The members of the independent board have gone on to launch a website to print their opinions and fight back against what they refer to as the “anti-pluralism” of the Princetonian.
